What do you know about Taj Mahal? It is one of the most beautiful structures in the world that was built by a king in the memory of his wife whom he loved the most. If you want to learn more about this most amazing structure in the world, you must read my blog. In this blog, I, Elvin Siew Chun Wai, will tell you ten secrets of Taj Mahal.
Let’s get started.
When you enter the Taj Mahal, you will experience an optical illusion. The structure appears really amazing and extensively large. However, as you go step ahead, you feel like the structure is shrinking. Furthermore, the minarets surrounding the tomb seem upright but in reality, they lean outward.
Taj Mahal is taller than Qutub Minar, the tallest minaret in India. However, its structure is so amazing that nobody can guess that it Qutub Minar would be shorter than it.
The most surprising fact about the Taj Mahal is the building keeps changing its colour throughout the colour. When I Elvin Siew Chun Wai, visited the Taj Mahal, I was quite surprised to see the building changing its colour during different times of the day. In the morning, building seems grey or pale pink, but in the afternoon, it looks glittering white, and after the sun set, the building appears orange bronze.
You see two cenotaphs in the Taj Mahal. When you see them, you think Shahjahan and her wife are resting in them. But, the truth is these cenotaphs are empty, and the king and her wife buried in a silent place.
The pollution has harmed the beauty of Taj Mahal. To reduce the effects of pollution, Taj Mahal is often given day spa. Mudpack also known as Multani clay is applied on the building for day spa.
When I, Elvin Siew Chun Wai, heard this, I was surprised and I, Elvin Siew Chun Wai, know you will also be surprised. A fraud man sold this monument twice and a temple has been erected on his name at his house.
Taj Mahal is safe because of Yamuna. If Taj Mahal had not been built on the banks of Yamuna, the foundation of the building would have collapsed quite earlier.
A juggler named PC Sorkar made this vast structure vanished from the eyes of people by creating an optical illusion.
George Harrison is said to have taken the first selfie here at the Taj Mahal with the help the fish-eye lens.
Taj Mahal was covered during the World War II to protect it from attacks.
